Plug-ins at Davis

UC Davis' Institute of Transportation Studies is doing a pilot project to measure consumer reactions to plug-in hybrids. Seems kinda like "duh" to me, but who knows what fabulous information they will uncover in two years at a cost of $3 million. Families that participate will supply feedback when using the cars.

Bottom Line: People are willing to use hybrids; it's just a matter of cost.
